    1 thought on “Buddha Stories

    1. Beautiful gold print on indigo pages makes this book attractive to all who see it. The book opens with a brief paragraph about a book of Buddhist teaching made with gold wood block print on indigo in around 600 AD, and three paragraphs from the author about his love for the themes of Buddhist teaching.Each page spread features one page of story, with the moral printed in a single sentence at the end, and a facing page with an illustration. Stories are either all animal characters or animals inte [...]

    2. I picked this up on a whim at the library as I've read few other books by Demi and this looked intriguing. Unfortunately, this did run into a problem that was no fault of the author that I occasionally get with library books, particularly if they're taken from the children's section. It had been repaired, and not well, so some of the pages were completely out of order, which led to a bit of annoyance on my part. I had honestly never heard any of these very short stories before, although the para [...]

    3. This is a compilation of fables that the Buddha taught to his disciples/followers. Each story ends with a moral. There is an author’s note on the front end page. The note explains the artwork and gives the reader information on Jatakas tales. Many stories will sound familiar to readers. The Lion King is similar to Chicken Little and the Little Gray Donkey is similar to The Donkey in the Lions Skin.

    4. I usually don’t like stories where “and the moral of the story is…” but this one won me over.The book is gorgeous. Gold writing and illustrations on dark blue pages. The result is really striking and different.Each story and its moral down at the bottom of the page is pithy and discussion worthy.This could make a good gift book for both adults and children.

    5. This book is another good book by Demi, who can easily give a really good idea of what different religions and stories are about. This is a compilation of stories that have morals to them, and I would definitely use these in a classroom to show morals. The stories are short and all have animals in them, so kids will really enjoy them and be able to understand the lesson behind them.

    6. A beautiful book of dark indigo/black pages and gold ink with wonderful, thought-provoking tales. Author's notes explains the intent of the gold on dark dark blue and it is understandable, however, it makes it hard to read.

    7. I loved this book and the stories in it! They are great reads for kids and adults! I didn't give this book five stars because I felt that the pages and illustrations were too dark. Other than that I recommend it for all!

    8. Typically I love the richness of Demi's illustrations. However, here I feel she didn't do justice to the material. It is all black and gold which could be fine but seems flat here.Basically the some of the Jataka stories, sort of Aesop meets Buddhism.

    9. I am currently new to Buddhism. I enjoyed these parables very much. I do not think of this as a children's book since the knowledge contained considers such deep thought. I feel like this is a great book for everyone, but especially for others who are interested in learning the dharma.

    10. Gorgeous book and lovely, short stories. Our librarian suggested this as a companion to a South Asian novel our students reading, and the fables really did pair nicely. I just wantd more stories, 10 felt too short.

    11. You do not need to be a Buddhist to appreciate the messages this books teaches. A great book with great morals. :3

    12. Gorgeous book, with indigo pages and gold text and pictures, apparently to mimic the first printed book. Lovely and familiar stories.
